  1. Pain during urination
    This is usually a common symptom of sexually
    transmitted infections, caused by the
    ascension of bacteria from the reproductive
    organs into the bladder. This causes intense
    irritation of the inner lining of the bladder by
    toxins produced by the bacteria. This
    translates to intense burning sensation and
    pain during urination. When your partner
    complains of pain during urination or you
    notice it yourself, you may advise him or her
    to go for a test.
  2. Discharge from the vagina or the joystick
    This is another important way to know if your
    partner has STI. It is common with gonorrhea
    infection in men which lead to a creamy white
    discharge from the joystick with associated
    itching and intense pain on urination. If your
    partner complains or you notice any discharge
    from the vagina or the joystick, then it is a
    solid pointer that he/she has STI.
  3. Presence of sores around the genitals or the
    The presence of any sore around the mouth or
    the genitals should give a suspicion of STI.
    Mouth sore may be indicative of herpes
    infection especially in people who practice
    MouthAction. Other STI like the dreaded
    syphilis infection also presents like a typical
    sore found on the joystick or inside the
  4. Painful sexual intercourse
    With adequate pre-intimacy, psychological
    readiness and increase fluid secretion by the
    cells lining the vagina, sexual intercourse
    should not be painful with a pleasurable
    experience. With STI, sex becomes painful due
    to the changes that occur with the vagina by
    the invading organisms. This can be as a
    result of dryness, internal sores, adhesions of
    surrounding structures commonly seen with
    PID and friability of the mucosa lining of the
    vagina. If your partner always complains of
    pain during sexual intercourse then it is
    advisable to consult a physician for proper
  5. Itching around the genitals
    This is an important sign that is often ignored
    by the patient and sexual partner. Studies
    have shown that more than 70% of genital
    itching without any other symptom turns out
    to be a sexually transmitted infection. This is
    caused by the local effect of the toxins
    produced by the bacteria on the cells of the
    affected area.
  6. Strong/ offensive vaginal odour during
    sexual intercourse
    Classically, the fishy odour experienced during
    sexual intercourse is highly suggestive of
    Bacterial Vaginosis. This is caused by certain
    organisms that colonize the internal
    reproductive organs of the female. The female
    reproductive organs should be devoid of any
    pungent, strong or offensive smell and as
    such, it is a way to know your partner may
    have STI.
  7. Abnormalities of menstruation
    It is very common to hear women complain of
    intermenstrual bleeding (vaginal bleeding
    between menses), heavy menstrual flow or
    painful menstruation, but very few people are
    aware that such symptoms may be indicative
    of an STI affecting the menstrual cycle of the
    patient. This also is a way to know if your
    partner has STI.
  8. Swollen/painful testis
    After unprotected sexual intercourse, micro-
    organisms may ascend into the testes from
    the urethra hence establishing an infection
    within the testes. This leads to severe pain
    and swollen testes. It is commonly
    accompanied with other symptoms like fever,
    anorexia, nausea and vomiting. However,
    swollen/ painful testes should be differentiated
    from twisting of the testis around its stalk
    because the latter is a medical emergency that
    needs a prompt surgical intervention. When
    you notice this condition in your partner, it’s a
    sign he’s probably infected.
